Imagine that you’re developing app on desktop and you want to test it also on mobile devices. It’s quite daunting task to reload all pages and tap on device every time you need refresh. Adobe introduced simple, but powerful solution – Adobe Shadow.
How it works?
Install Adobe Shadow app on you desktop and start it. This will act as bridge between you browser and mobile devices.
Install Adobe Shadow client app on each mobile device and install extension to Google chrome.
Authenticate devices by pass code and start browsing in web browser. It will sync all devices in you WiFi network connected to Shadow. Adobe Shadow will send URL from Google Chrome to all devices and it will keep devices in sync.
This is very handy app for mobile development and testing.
ColorPicker is not available in Flex 4.5 with Spark architecture. I found this problem while I was migrating desktop project to mobile AIR for Android.
Fortunately there is solution. Alex Harui wrote simple Spark based components that replace ColorPicker and DataField functionality.
Update: Unfortunetely swatch DropDown component does not work in mobile world. You could not select color from swatch. This problem is bounded to DropDown/ComboBox problem in mobile world. I recieved recommendation from Adobe developers to move DropDown part to new view state and avoid using s:DropDown.
Please drop a comment to this post if you have working mobile colorpicker component.
